Very Good

Catch & Release has been built from the ground up for VR and tracked controllers. Choose the right bait, pick a good fishing ground and cast your rod to get the biggest fish on the hook! But once you do, it’s not over yet. You’ll have to tire out your catch and win the fight before you can reel it in! While you fish you can listen to music on the radio, skip stones across the lake or use any other of the many interactive items. The game is designed to enable players to unwind and play however they want, or you can take on missions to unlock new gear and interactive items to help you catch the biggest fish! The dynamic rumble feedback of the rod and line are completely realistic and immersive, easy to lose yourself in for hours. The fish look amazing and wiggly, smooth framerate and beautiful scenery. Really fun and relaxing game. Enough objectives to keep it interesting, casual enough to play with a friend who isn't great at games.
